Cleaning Rugs

Professional cleaning of your Oriental rugs will bring out the richness of color and softness of the wool. Depending on the amount of traffic, a professional washing of your oriental rug is recommended every one to three years. Rotation: To ensure even wear, your rug should be rotated once a year. Depending on the traffic, the rotation may vary from six months to two years. Also, rotate your rugs according to the amount of direct sunlight. Over time direct sunlight can fade the dyes of your rugs.

Padding: A quality pad used under your rug helps protect it from dirt, wear, and slippage. We will be happy to provide you with the correct padding.

 

Restoration: In case of damage, just about any problem has a solution with professional restoration. Old and antique rugs sometimes need to be rewoven where worn, and restored to life. Newer rugs are rarely in need of repair. An experienced professional must be consulted in these matters.

Vacuuming: Vacuum your rug on a regular basis to remove dirt and restore life to the fibers. Be sure to go back and forth in the same direction over the entire rug (avoiding the fringes). If you are vacuuming with a beater brush, we suggest you set the brush so it just touches the top of the pile and moves easily across the rug. When vacuuming with a carpet tool, ease the suction of the vacuum by adjusting it accordingly. Be sure to periodically vacuum the back of the rug.

 

Try Before You Buy It!

 

You can, and should, try any rug before you purchase it. Every rug should be seen where it is going to be used. Showroom lighting is not the same as your home lighting, and the furniture and other items in the room make all the difference in the look of the rug. As part of our services, we let you try any of our rugs at home, so you can make your final decision at ease in your home.
